I run the DragonCon Cigar Group that hosts social events for Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf at DragonCon, where the 501st got its start. This group has grown to 356 members and is a vibrant, thriving and congenial lot... I have also run the Cigar nights at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim and Orlando.. After seeing them grow, I have been asked by local friends why I hadn't done anything locally.. and I decided to run with it.. after all, it has worked for Star Wars Celebration and it works for DragonCon.. so I thought to include the local nerds as well..

We held the first Nerd-centered cigar night Last Friday, June 23rd...

After the successful launch, in which many members of the costuming community came and joined us to partake of the gentlemanly art of the Leaf... I have decided to extend an invitation to members of the garrison who either, currently enjoy, have in the past, or are curious to learn about the world of the Leaf..

I'm planning the next event:

When: August 25th, 2017 - 7:30pm
Where: 7176 South 900 East, Midvale, UT 84047

This event runs concurrent to the now famous cosplay night that runs the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month first at the penalty box and now at the Union.. and it is a pretty good time.. We are all inclusive and all are welcome to join (no, you don't have to smoke to take part).. even if you just want to spend time with good friends..

PM me if you need any further details.. Hope to see you there..

I'm not saying you're sensitive; I just don't remember the last time a detergent commercial made ME cry...

Had fun last time. I hope to be able to make it next time as well. This time I will look into acquiring my own so I do not have to take yours!

I'll definitely be there, I had a lot of fun hanging with everyone during non-trooping time. Our $5 cover charge goes to charity, and there's not much we like more than that, right?

I would love to come, even thought I don't smoke, it would still be nice to chat with the people behind the armor and just have a good time.

An amazing night spent with great friends. I love seeing the growth and diversity of this Garrison. These social events coincide with supporting charities which we all love and provides a great opportunity to meet our membership and the community at large.

Well done planning and executing a fantastic night. I'm looking forward to the next night.
